There are now a variety of social networking sites which allow you to maintain both a professional and personal profile. This allows you to keep the two activities separate. Be very careful how you set up the privacy settings on your pages. Some of these services still keep your data long after you sign off from their service, for example, you can still be tagged on Facebook, even if you have closed down your own site. Some people will use the same service, like Twitter, for both a professional and personal profile.
Why bother? This YouTube video should make you think!
